Used by Hungarian kings as a coronation church centuries ago, now Matthias Church is a working Roman Catholic church with holy masses, stunning architecture and classic concerts.

According to historians the original church that stood where the current building is standing was founded by Szent Istvan (Saint Stephen), who was the first king of Hungary in 1015.

Interestingly, the name of the church refers to King Matthias Corvinus and not to Saint Stephen, who decided to expand and renew the whole building in Renaissance style, also adding a tower, called Matthias bell tower.

Located at the very heart of Buda’s Castle District in front of the Fisherman’s Bastion, Matthias Church is one of the finest churches in Budapest, and most definitely one the most unique churches in Europe.
